The MKG Method is the signature training program at the Minnesota Kali Group HQ. By blending five primary arts—Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Thai Boxing, Panantukan and Mixed Grappling—into a single program, Guro Rick Faye has created a true mixed martial arts experience for thousands of students around the world.
At Combat we believe that studying different arts simultaneously is the best way to develop your skills in the long run. Each art seems to help the assimilation of the others. They also help you to develop natural attributes like speed, strength and endurance in different ways, which results in quicker and longer-lasting changes.
What to Expect During Class
During class you will typically begin with Kali stickwork, which helps you develop good body mechanics along with upper and lower body coordination. This is sometimes followed by basic JKD, shadow boxing or weaponry techniques. And then we always finish class with kickboxing curriculum, usually from Thai boxing. Here you will acquire a solid defensive structure, learn how to generate offense and build endurance. MKG Method classes are a great workout for your whole body and will help you to establish the base skills for everything we do at Combat.
